Ivan’s Celebrity Airhead of the Week

This week’s celebrity airhead is George Clooney. George takes his dear old Dad to Darfur, to interview poor starving refugees on how it feels to be a poor starving refugee who is being interviewed.

Remarkably, none of the emaciated wretches on hand crack them over the head with a ladle and boil them for soup, which I must admit would have been my first thought, hungry or not. Years of suffering have obviously taught these gentle souls superhuman restraint.

All very worthy, George, but couldn’t you have stayed at home and let Dad get on with it? Go make another film denouncing McCarthyism, why don’t you? Good to see an actor who’s not afraid to take a controversial position on a hot topic of the day…


George Clooney in Darfur, yesterday. “It’s a terrible humanitarian tragedy. Many of these people have no idea who I am.”

My guess is George's checkbook was conspicuously absent. That's my responsibility, I suppose.

Cheers.

Now Ivan. Are you just a teeny weeny bit jealous of gorgeous George. Where is your charity? And Randall too. Now what would you think if I went off on one about the one with fat lips - can't reme...Jolie? Hmmm?

Pi - go right ahead, the floor is yours! I wouldn't touch that crazy Cambodian-hugging bitch with Randall's... :)

“It’s a terrible humanitarian tragedy. Many of these people have no idea who I am.”

I believe you've hit the Hollywood mentality squarely on the head.

Ivan the Terrible said...

That's nothing. His next line was to demand to be taken to meet the nearest local Academy voter so he could plug his latest film. I don't think anyone's heard from him since...

At least he knows where Darfur is.

Ivan the Terrible said...

Yay! Aunty M's back! I was getting worried :)

I wouldn't be so sure, tho', Aunty. He probably has someone to do that for him...

Marianne's right. Most of these Hollywood types don't know if they're Arfur or Marfur.
